. caller: we in michigan have to decide in november whether to allow a big state to come into a city to take over and take a financial manager or an emergency manager and. i guess they think the cities who have -- local government where they can come in and remove the city officials. like the mayor, city council. now, i do not think that is what the presidential candidate mitt romney had in mind when he wanted to say states have rights. but what about the city's rights to elect their own elected officials? and i guess follow their own destiny? winnie's a government interference, i understand you are talking about the federal. but i heard mitt romney say states' rights. is it the right of the state to come into the cities and overthrow the local municipalities? if that is big government, small government. i do not know. i think they should have the right to control their own destiny in their own city. it is on the ballot in november. and i am telling everybody in michigan to a vote it down. we did not need dictatorship. it is a dictator bill. host: thank you. on twitter -- the governm

, rockingham county area, cities like rochester are certainly areas that are indicative of what may happen in this election. but the other location candidates are coming into is the city of nashua, the second- largest city in the state. we are seeing the president was there a few days ago last saturday. it seems to be a place that is being fought over. it's along the massachusetts border. massachusetts is the stated that governor romney led. so it is a very interesting area. many of the people from nashua work in massachusetts. host: who are the voters in this area? guest: new hampshire has traditionally libertarian streak. our motto is live free or die. it is a tossup location. the voters, i think they are voting for the person they think is going to lead this country the next four years. some people will say new hampshire has a summer home of governor romney and the state next door, massachusetts, where he was governor. i think that is less of a factor. i think the people of new hampshire can see beyond that and are voting for the person they think is best for the 50 states. host: tell u
: the candidates have been through your city many times. have you been to a rally for president obama? caller: i was at one rally and it was raining that day. it was love to stand out there in that rally, but i did it anyway. -- it was rough. host: what was the security like and how early did you have to go? caller: i did not see any incidents and security was not bad. you had to get there a little early because they always block off the main thoroughfares to get into wherever the president is. that was probably the only difficult thing for me, was to get to the venue. i felt secure when i was there. i did not feel anything was going to happen. when you go to these rallies, everybody is all eyeball's anyway because they are hoping nothing does happen, so their life is not in danger. host: how many hours ahead did you have to get their? caller: just a couple. when you do something like that, you have to prepare for something like that. if you have to budget your time for at least -- if it normally takes 15 or 20 minutes to get there, you take that into consideration and then take into considerati
the past 48 hours. on tuesday and wednesday, they visited a combined 11 cities in six states covering more than 3,000 miles each. the president started in florida into ohio, nevada, denver, colorado, out to los angeles for an appearance on "the tonight show" last night. the president traveling again back in that crucial swing state of ohio. mitt romney's camp also going to ohio, out to nevada in rena and also to colorado. we will be tracking all those movements today. we want to know which issue is driving your vote. we will start on the democratic line. robert, what is driving your vote? caller: the republicans made the statement that they refuse to work with this president and they were going to see that he was going to be a one-time president. because of that, i think we should send this president back to the white house to work with republicans. otherwise we would be perpetuating a dysfunctional government. we should put him back in the white house and forced the republicans to work with this president. if we do not, we are perpetuating the prophecy of this president being a one-time p
and i've talked to the governors of the potentially impacted states as well as the cities in the region. at this stage, everybody is confident that the staging process, the position of equipment that are going to be needed to respond to the storm are in place. but as craig has imp sized this hasn't hit land fall yet so we don't know where it's going to hit or where we're going to see the biggest impacts. and that's why it's so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all the members of the team for the outstanding work that they're doing. but the other thing that makes this storm unique is we anticipate it's going to be slow moving. that means it may take a long time not only to clear but to get, for example, the power companies to get in to clear trees and put things back in place so that folks can start moving back home. so my main message to everybody involved is that we have to take this seriously t. federal government is working effectively with the state and local dwovements. it's going to be very important that populations in
that i am familiar with. i would reinstate the mexico city policy which is that foreign aid dollars from the united states would not be used to carry out abortions and other countries. host: that is audio from his sit-down with the "desk moines register"board. >> his campaign has been very disciplined lately. that was not the right place. the problem and should have not said under any circumstances. what i think it means is that he picked paul ryan as the biggest issue. he said he will put every bit of his efforts into that. once that is fixed, you can turn to other issues. that's probably a view that is shared by the vast majority of americans. you don't want to deal with abortion, that you are making that a secondary issue. for voters, that is a primary issue. it is about whether people live or die. i was a very violence led community. -- they have a very pro-life community. host: is the headline from "politico." let's go to the phones. san marino, california, republican. caller: thank you for cspan. i want to get your impression over the whole thing that we have been told our last, ho

. there is a pitch my friends in city council will be happy for. a lot of others have already made up their minds. both sides can look at the recovery act and make strong cases for wire why not it did not work. we do not have enough time today to dispute that, but the point that we make in the editorials are that it provided significant spending to the state of colorado. it funded teacher jobs and other government programs to lessen the impact of the great recession here in the state and stimulus spending allowed for many of those schauble-ready -- shovel ready project to move forward. in recent history, we have had a hard time finding some of these on our own. women's health issue will be a big one, especially in the suburbs around denver. the automobile industry one does not play quite as strongly here, but it is certainly something to consider. we have a healthy manufacturing sector, not tied to the automobile industry, but it's one of the key pieces of our economy here. host: one other issue people are pay attention to are the congressional races. can you sum them up for us? guest: the hot ra

of voters. host: next call is in kansas city, missouri caller: my question to your guess is, how to use the border intimidation affecting the election? -- voter intimidation affecting the election? guest: the question we have gotten most of the cycle is about the notion of photo i.d., having to show that at the polls to vote. i guess i am biased because i live in washington and it seemed like i have to show my id to go to start talks. -- to go to starbucks. i am sort of used to it. but in a lot of places where it has been tested it has worked fairly well. states have been working hard to make sure that people who do not get -- do not have frodo adis get them. -- photo id's get them. there was some voter suppression advertisements in cleveland. they have been widely criticized. widespread suppression and tactics and widespread intimidation, i do not know that they are as rampant as people tend to believe they are. host: the next question comes from ellen chambers, a student at nowlin university -- lynn university. caller: given the outrageous monetary value being generated in both the c

pink areas. guest: 70 of the counties are red. the big cities are blue. the rural parts, a smaller counties are part of the republican coalition. if you look at election results on a statewide map, you will see mostly red. the blue areas is where the population centers are. host: turnout for election day and early voting, what are you looking at? to get out thetle base, for democrats in relatively few urban areas like columbus, toledo, akron, cleveland, dayton. and republicans getting out their base in rural and ex-urban areas, this will be critical. just as important if not more important than appealing to the meeting in voter. in this respect, this is why everybody looks to ohio every four years. a microcosm for the rest of the country, not in all respects but in this respect, where the battle over turnout will be huge. that's precisely why the obama campaign has been fighting so hard to preserve the early voting the last three days before the election, because they see this as a critical way of getting their base out. i think they think they are in a better position to do that f
cities? if he is not aware, there is a youtube video. what about filtering money through to the obama campaign for progressive insurance, coca- cola co., companies like that? obama says he is getting money from contributions, but they filter that money -- other money in. i will take the answer of the air. guest: if you take a look at the money being spent in this campaign, it is $1 billion. both sides have taken money from small donors, middle sized donors, large donors. i believe that americans have a right to put their money where their beliefs are. that is a sustainable part of our democracy. they are talking out of both sides of their mouth, frankly, belittling those who received large contributions, but they have received their fair share as well. you are either for free speech or you are not. newton before controlled spending, that is okay, but she cannot receive these funds and at the same time criticized the process. host: one of the handles from a reporter followers -- -- from our twitter follower -- host: what about they feel split loyalties? a hard one tos sustain, logicall
involved. the numbers are on your screen -- our first call comes from james in bay city, mich. on our line for republicans. caller: good morning. i understand if you have no children at all, it would be a good deal. on the other hand, what is the downside to this bank? -- to this thing? i am 90 years old. thank you. guest: the first thing people should think about is whether they really need to have this money. if you needed to stay in the home and you have no other assets or way to borrow money, then you should look into a reverse mortgage. the thing you have to be careful of, for instance, if you have a property that is valued at $250,000, and if you're 65, you could maybe get a loan of $135,000 on a because they don't give you the full value of the home in the loan. the give you a portion of that. it goes up as your oldness or fewer 90 years old and having to order the $2,000 house, you can get close to $200,000 on that house. what are you going to do without lump sum of money? if there is another 10 years that the person lives, you can be adding $80,000 or more to that loan. you could
